Presidents Message

Hi all,

Pediatric Emergency Care is perhaps the fastest growing specialty of paediatrics attracting the attention of a growing number of young doctors and nurses to provide excellence in acute care medicine.

Across our nation, Pediatric emergency physicians and nurses are becoming increasingly essential in nursing homes and large volume hospitals. The Society of Trauma and Emergency Paediatrics (STEP) is committed to providing its members with a national platform to explore special issues and unique challenges faced by emergency nurses and doctors.

The STEP was founded in ——-2002—- and has grown hugely since then. It has advocated the cause of the critically ill and injured child during the golden hour of management. The society has persevered to create an awareness in field of education, practise and in establishing a continuum of care from entrance of the hospital to the wards and ICUs.

Over the past decade and a half, STEP has created a strong fellowship program in Pediatric Emergency Care. It has also conducted the hugely popular National Assembly in Pediatric Emergency Care (NAPEM) with faculty from India and abroad.

As we move forward, it is my hope that the STEP would attract more youngsters to take of the cause of saving young children’s lives and get them back on track.

Indeed, the need for specialized training in the care of the critically ill child has become even more relevant in the current COVID pandemic.

My respect and prayers for the safety of all young COVID warriors battling in the emergency departments caring for the acutely ill.

Thank you and Jai Hind
